Most people like to sleep on a mattress...

I bought a bed recently. In Havant. I walked into the shop, looked at the bed. Then I said to one of the employees: "May I purchase one of those beds please?" A rudimentary reading of my face would probably have shown that this was the first bed I've ever bought.

I'd been brought up believing that most people have beds and mattresses in pairs: one bed with one mattress. I'm still wondering why he never offered to sell me one...
